Hi

Wondering if anyone on the forum can help me. I'm looking to get the above measurement for the original rigid forks that came on Orange Clockworks back in 1993.

Anyone know / have one they can measure / have a link to a frame sizes/angles diagram?

Thanks

Difficult to measure with a tape but my 1993 Clockwork seems to have a centre of axle to base of lower part of headset measurement of 380mm . I believe the frame has the original forks.

Thanks a lot.

And frank.youngman, that's a nice looking bike! Think it has swayed my choice of re-powdercoat colour :cool:

A thorough re-measure came up with 385mm.

The powder coat colour on mine is RAL 2004 Pure Orange and the handlebars and stem are RAL 9010 Pure White.Gil's decals are a lighter orange which gives a nice contrast with the darker pure orange.Since completing it I have swopped the dark rim Mavic 261 wheels for silver Mavic 231's,which looks a lot better and sheds some weight.The Orange branded bottle and seat are modern ones straight from Orange.They are not authentic but still manage to add something.
